For six consecutive years, Christine Baranski earned Emmy nominations in the Best Drama Supporting Actress category for her performance on “The Good Wife.” After missing out on a bid for the show’s final season, Baranski will re-enter the awards derby in the Lead Actress category in 2017 for her starring role on the upcoming spinoff “The Good Fight,” which premieres February 19 on CBS All Access. Will Baranski finally win at the Emmy Awards for playing Diane Lockhart? Vote in our poll below.
To earn a nomination as Best Drama Actress, Baranski will have to break through last year’s competitive line-up of actresses, all of whom will be eligible to return. Those nominees were incumbent winner Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”), current Oscar contenders Viola Davis (“How to Get Away with Murder”) and Taraji P. Henson (“Empire”), as well as Claire Danes (“Homeland”), Keri Russell (“The Americans”) and Robin Wright (“House of Cards”).
In addition, Baranski faces a crop of contenders from new, critically acclaimed series. Early standouts include Claire Foy (“The Crown”), Winona Ryder (“Stranger Things”) and Evan Rachel Wood (“Westworld”). Will Baranski win a bookend Emmy to go along with her supporting trophy for “Cybill” (1995)? After voting in our poll below, be sure to sound off in our TV forums.
